Geoffrey Beevers's narration of this 1974 serial shows how well the Doctor stands the test of time. Time, of course, is the center of the adventure in DOCTOR WHO, and here the Doctor and his assistant, Jo Grant, inadvertently travel to 2471. They become embroiled in a dispute between a band of colonists and a greedy mining company (and become party to the unknown motivations of the Master). Unlike many Doctor Who audio productions, this is a single-voice narrative, but Beevers does an outstanding job of making it sound like many voices are at work. There are minimal music and sound effects, but the narrative hardly needs them. For new and loyal fans alike, this is Doctor Who at his finest.
